The Kremke Soul Wool brand was founded by Britta and Carsten Kremke. Britta grew up in her mother’s yarn store, the first "yarn only" shop in Hamburg in the 60’s. Ever since being a teenager she has been knitting almost every day: But she eventually got tired from too many “Fancy Yarns” in the market and felt uninspired by the standard ranges of “Merino Super Wash” and “Super Sock” yarns most large brands offered. What she imagined were yarns “with a soul”, yarns that were special, yarns that had a story to tell. So almost ten years ago, she started having producers spin distinct fibres into interesting, yet classic yarns at competitive prices for her young brand.
